Education has given exponentially more people literacy and the ability to communicate ideas and knowledge than any other time in our collective history. The more information, content, and data gets exchanged, the more human society shifts against Pre-Digital Ideologies, which largely survive due to lack of education, access to information, and tribalism.
Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.George Washing, Farewell Address -- On Political Parties
60% of the world is connected digitally. Over the next 100 years, 99% of humanity will be networked through national networks similar to China's. Human connectivity is digital, global, and exponentially increasing.
The reality of the world that is being talked about internationally is that 1% of global households, or an estimated 78+ million people, own $173.3 trillion or 43.4% of global wealth. 4.5 billion households, or 87% of the global population, collectively own $64 trillion. The reality of wealth inequality, government corruption, political party partisanship, and economic instability will culminate in populist uprisings globally.
Information, data, and knowledge have always been the most potent weapons in humanity's arsenal, with the ability to control people's thoughts and actions. It can breed religions, ideologies, revolutions, and rebellions. It is the most sought-after resource by every company and government in the world.
How information is communicated and interpreted can turn a police officer kneeling on a person's neck for eight minutes and 43 seconds from a story you heard about on the radio to a civil war between government agents, political partisans, and innocent people causing billions in damage, a loss of dozens of lives, and the acceleration of civic balkanization.
Mass digital communication distribution with information damaging to the ruling class is the only weapon capable of liberating humanity from pre-digital ideologies. Bringing focus on the individuals behind the corporations, government agencies, and anti-populist organizations is a weaponization of information on the government, and those that control it wish to remain out of the reach of everyday people.
